PC LINEAR / Story
Pierre Charpin’s PC Linear is the latest member to join the family of PC lamps. The new design shares the same simple and elegant profile that is present in the rest of the family. The PC Linear’s shade is pressed from a single aluminium component with a wet-sprayed finish. The linear design is ideal for suspending over meeting or dining tables, as well as for illuminating exhibition shelves in commercial spaces. The PC Linear is available in black or white and is suitable for both contract and domestic use.
Trained as an artist, Pierre Charpin has devoted himself to furniture and object design since the early 1990s. His approach to design is strongly influenced by his artistic background. Pierre’s research on form and color characterize his work and can be seen in both, limited edition products and industrial products like the PC lamp. The use of a simple vocabulary and elementary forms is a constant aspect in his work, as well as the desire to offer sensual objects. Drawing, which he practices as a starting point for his designs, is an essential part of his creative process. Pierre Charpin's pieces have been included in exhibitions around the world and are held in many museum collections. He was elected Designer of the Year 2017 at Maison & Objet. He lives and works in Paris.
